Jodha Bai Ka Rauza

Jodha Bai Ka Rauza is an excellent example of the fusion of Hindu and Muslim architectures. The palace of Emperor Akbar's favorite queen-Jodha Bai, the place has distinct Gujarati and Rajasthani architectural patterns.

After Akbar conquered Malwa he faced strong resistances from the Rajput kings. Akbar dealt with the problem diplomatically, allowing them to keep their kingdoms and getting into marriage alliances with the princesses of the Rajput clans. He married Jodha Bai, sister of Man Singh, the powerful ruler of Jaipur. She was his favorite queen and she got the permission to worship in the Hindu way in her palace.
